Turning my food over to my sponsor, after I ate it, made me accountable for the first time in my life...this worked for me.

(Ain't it funny how this idea made my stomach do a flip? Thank you for pointing out to me that I am not pulling the wool over anybody's eyes about what I eat. If it isn't eaten in public view, it still shows up on my frame, huh?)

Congratulations Judy!
This is a great LC story and we are very proud of you!

They call it "being in denial" for a reason!! This exercise, logging my food, makes me keep it real!!

Your success is very encouraging to me. Mother/daughter scenerio is about the same and even the NAME! I'm just a few years older than you so I'm hoping I can reach goal too!

Good story Judy, and you've made us all aware that eating is more than just putting something in our mouth's.

Your success story was well written and inspirational. One point that jumped off the page to me was (1) your fierce motivation AND (2) an adapted foodplan - South Beach - that worked for you. At various times before in your life you had one but not both.

As someone who has in the past found it difficult to lose - who knows about the future, I'm optimistic - I am as interested in what "clicked" to make it happen for you. Clearly it always takes a lot of work and dedication, but it also takes dieting/healthy eating smart. I honestly believe the tailoring the foodplan to an individual is the key.

Tricky key because the self-sabotaging behavior is operating at the same time as the tailoring. South Beach's structured Phase I and adding in foods Phase II is a good tool for this tailoring.

I feel that - not sure yet - that I can have controlled portions of selected fruits in Phase I. I think the "mistakes" are on spacing my food and selecting enough vegetables and lean enough proteins.

I pretty well recognize a long, long list of foods that I should avoid which include sugary carbs, most starches, and fatty foods. The jury is still out on dairy (skimmed milk to cream, yogurt to ricotta). I suspect dairy may need tight portion controls or even be a food allergy. I know that ice cream of any kind (lc, nf, sf, or regular) is my comfort nemesis. I really need to keep it out of sight although I think I can eat a 1/2 c portion occasionally without problem. I cannot live around it.

Enough about me, but your success story got my creative problem solving flowing.

Thanks.

You can do this pammie!! stay with it and get real stubborn with yourself....one day at a time!!

Want some advice? well...here it is anyway
1- start a journal here and use it daily
2- introduce yourself in the Triple Digit Club...best place here for those like ourselves who need to lose 100 lbs or more....lots of support there!
3- come here daily and read and post alot!! it helps to stay in touch with others who are doing it too!!

My best to you!!

Wow Judy, what an awesome journey you have had! Just goes to show that we get back twofold what we give others (even pupper dogs).

Congratulations on your continued success! The journey never really ends, does it?! Thank you for your inspiration!

Smiles,
Bon
